Organize & Make Use Of Your Online News With Enliten

As the years roll on and more sources for news keep cropping up online, I find it difficult to find high quality sources of headline news. Part of the reason for that is that I usually like to have multiple sources for the same story. You can always search out Google News, which does aggregate major news sources, but it’s not always easy to get news stories geared toward specific interests or topics without searching Google News.

The Negative Impact Of Social Networking Sites On Society [Opinion]

I have accounts on several social networking sites, and spend far too long on them writing my own updates and reading the updates of others.

9 Types Of Facebook Status Updates That Your Friends Will Like

One thing that I’ve noticed when I talk to friends that initially start using Facebook is that “nobody comments on my wall.” Sometimes, I’ll even try to help them out by letting them show me their Facebook wall and trying to help them understand what they’re doing wrong, and why people may not feel encouraged to comment on their status updates. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of reciprocating.

Instagram – From Zero To A Billion [INFOGRAPHIC]

The big news on the net this week that has got everyone talking is Instagram’s acquisition by Facebook for the absurd amount of $1 billion. Why absurd? Because Instagram has zero revenue, so how can anyone say that the company is worth $1 billion? It’s as if Mark Zuckerberg suddenly felt like buying something. Other people buy a puppy or a sports car. Zuckerberg drops a billion on a company with no revenue.
